About This Image

One Heron was getting a bit toooo close to the nest of the other, - it all happened as I was shooting.
Had no idea there was a heron in the nest (that pile of twigs at the L corner : ) - the one heron was slowly approaching the nest, when suddenly the other heron was there, - it must have sprung out of the nest, - you can see its one leg in nest here. The other heron has one leg/big foot dangling off the branch in surprise. The intruder flew off

you're right, Janice, it could be a dance too. They are so huge.

That is a beautiful dance they are doing. I know they are confronting each other but it looks as if they are dancing.

thanks Alex : ) - actually, the one heron was sneaking up towards the nest, as I was taking the pics of it. Suddenly the other one sprang out of the nest, he wasn't visible ealier! I was just as surprised as the intruding heron, LOL.

Another great capture,with so many nesting there its not surprising that they might land at the wrong nest.
